Teknari – Untitled (2015)
I think most ‘curated’ Tumblrs are like gifs? Pshaw!
I mean there is something undeniably obnoxious about a grid layout on a infinite scrolling blogs filled with gifs.
However, I think there’s an insane amount of potential for creativity within the format–like Vine’s that don’t suck or something.
I’m super not enamored with all Teknari’s work–too much of it is Jenny-Holzer-joins-a-Burzum-cover-band–but as far as someone who is actively exploring the outer boundaries of what gifs can accomplish, he is pretty much the bleeding edge.
I love the minimalism of this–it’s not one of those where there’s only a factional movement that makes you question whether it’s a still image or not. But scrolling through my dash, the movement is timed in such a way that I scroll back because I wonder if you saw it right.
